Brown reduced and other possibilities while waiting for the cross

Post by Liviu »

Hi, one of the genetic project I will try next year will be: brown reduced. In this respect I have two cocks which I will use. Both of them are hetero ash red hetero brown hetero reduced (ash red and reduced on the same chromosome).

Since I plan to also enjoy the waiting or maybe even make another step to a different project need to choose some hens for those two cocks. I thought at 3-4 possibilities but maybe you can share some of your ideas which could make the project more interesting.

On my list I have the following hens:
• blue base reduced spread,
• blue base extreme dilute,
• blue base stipper;
• blue base extreme dilute and reduced

Thanks,
Liviu

The base colour/reduced linkage is fairly weak, you won't be waiting too long :)

Should not take a long time but you never know. Since dilute and reduced are closely linked and the crossover between color locus and dilute is around 40% I expect the same between color and reduced.

Correct, that's what I'd expect too 👍
